DTU Physics

DTU Physics

DTU Physics focuses on research areas within modern physics with significant basic scientific challenges and also has clear application perspectives. The Department research ranges from studies of materials at the atomic scale, quantum physics and biophysics to the storage and use of renewable energy sources such as solar, wind and nuclear fusion.

Research at DTU Physics

Research at DTU Physics

The Department conducts research and research training within six defined areas including materials physics, quantum physics, biophysics, theoretical atomic-scale physics and fusion energy. Moreover Department of Physics coordinates the elite research initiative CASE and the interdisciplinary DTU Centre, Fluid DTU.

Teaching at DTU Physics

Teaching at DTU Physics

DTU Physics coordinates the Physics and Nanotechnology program, which consists of a Bachelor's and a Master's degree. The program is offered in cooperation with DTU Nanotech and DTU Photonics. In addition, the Department is responsible for the introductory physics education for all DTU students. Finally, we offer a wide range of student projects from undergraduate projects to thesis projects.

Nanoteket

Nanoteket

Nanoteket is a modern teaching laboratory at the Department of Physics at DTU. In Nanoteket both students from DTU and high school students can perform academically relevant experimental exercises that provide insight into the research field of physics and nanotechnology. It is free to visit Nanoteket.

Outreach at DTU Physics

At DTU Physics we emphasize the dissemination of our research. Our scientists give lectures, write popular science articles and participate in many other outreach activities. In addition, DTU Physics has participated in the publication of educational materials for both primary and secundary school. Finally, DTU Physics organize the annual Children's University at DTU. 

Nifelheim

Our Facilities

The NIFLHEIM Cluster Supercomputer is installed at the Center for Atomic-scale Materials Design (CAMD), and contains 4712 CPUs with more than 13 TeraBytes of RAM, the cluster's total peak performance is above 46 TeraFLOPS (46 million million floating-point operations per second).

Ultra High Vacuum

Our Facilities

The Ultra-high Vacuum lab comprises a unique collection of vacuum equipment for the study of catalytic material properties under well-defined conditions. In order to maintain a well-defined structure or composition of the material under investigation, extremely low pressures (~10^-13 bar) are required.

Kvanteoptik

Our Facilities

The Quantum Optics Lab comprises equipment for the study of the quantum properties of light and of color centers in diamond. A unique collection of low-noise laser sources, non-linear optical systems, and quantum detectors are used to generate, control, and characterize non-classical states of light and matter and to implement quantum information protocols.

Teknologi Historie

DTU's historical collection

DTU Physics houses DTU's historical collection. The collection contains historical objects, photographs and other archival material relating to DTU's history.

TOC

Researchers from DTU Physics have found a simple way to understand and predict why the (opto-)electronic properties of some semiconductors appear to be more tolerant to crystal defects than others.

ESOF 2014

Event for DTU Alumni about the fusion projects ITER and Wendel-stein 7 X. Professor Volker Naulin presents the two projects and describes the Danish
participation and research.
